iPadSuppliersWhite

Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently released another report, where he states that the next-gen iPad won't get new resolution this year.

"The most important reason why iPad 2 won’t have retinal display is yield rate of panel making. At this point, making high resolution and bright IPS/FFS panel is not easy and the production volume and cost couldn’t meet Apple’s requirements."

Apple to Announce the iPad 2 on February 9th



ipad 2 release

An image found in the iOS 4.3 beta 2 reveals not only icons of FaceTime, Photo Booth and Camera applications but also indicates a day when the rumored iPad 2 may be announced. If you take a look at the image above, you may notice that the left iPad wallpaper has a 27 on the Calendar app icon. That’s because the first-generation iPad was released on January 27, 2010. When looking at the preview for a chosen background in iOS 4.3 beta 2 you can see that the calendar-icon shows a 9. Someone believes that this is clear evidence confirming that the iPad 2 will be unveiled on February 9, 2011. It is possible that this could be the 9th of a more distant month.

Apple disabled jailbreak detection API in iOS 4.2



jailbreak API

Apple has reportedly disabled its jailbreak detection API through iOS 4.2 software update. The API helped third-party mobile device management (MDM) applications to check for unauthorized modifications of system files. Apple's jailbreak detection API provided MDM applications direct access to iOS system information and was able to ask the operating system directly if it had been jailbroken. Jailbreak exploits typically change a number of operating system files, and exploit one or another low-level OS features to let users directly load their own or third-party applications.

iOS 4.2 bugs: Disappearing Folders



ios 4 bug

You had spent minutes or even hours organizing your countless applications into Folders and finally noticed that folders gone and your apps exploded back across your Home Screen. Not surprising! Unfortunately, the disappearing folders had been noticed already in iOS 4 came out in June. So we see that the bug wasn’t fixed. Since it’s been around for several months and is still around after iOS 4.2 release it’s hard to understand the cause. Some users have experienced it after updating to a new version of iTunes, others after updating their applications on-device or doing hard resets.
